“Our love though, is a deliberate awareness - an acute focus, effortless in it’s guise: a seemingly overlooked openness and a deep level of unworldly beauty. Simply put, it is connecting with a deep part of your own being, so as to lay your eye on that, which is invisible in another. A skill to be honed, the way artists apprentice themselves to their work in their pursuit of mastery.
You are sublime in your entirety - you are steadfast in the presence of your convictions - your love is a deep breath, that remains there as an external exhale, only heightened in a lasting experience - timeless, ageless, ceaseless.
We do not fall unwittingly into love with another person, but rather we consciously practice a ‘growing into’ love with another.
So I earnestly ask, that you come paint with me, my darling.” I love you with all my heart,

As today marks the start of chapter 6 out of 8, I pray that this chapter would be filled with joy, prosperity and success☺️ “For I know the plans i have for you”, declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” - Jeremiah 29:11❤️❤️. #dankieJesus#blessed#positivethinking
How cute are these little guys?They look like little sharks 🦈 😊😁 makes sense why their nick name is Shark's Beak or Haaibekkie in Afrikaans. The scientific name is Gibbaeum pubescens, and they come from Swellendam in South Africa 🇿🇦. It is a "winter" grower and is most active from late winter until later spring and it goes dormant in summer. These guys are notoriously difficult to grow because the roots can rot very easily. The Gibbaeums thrive in dry and desert regions and are able to stand extended periods of drought and require careful watering. Water minimally in summer, only when the plant starts shrivelling, water more abundantly when they are growing in the autumn and spring, but let the soil dry between soaking. It needs a bright sunny or light shade exposure in winter, but keep cool and shaded in summer. And that’s all for now folks 😁 thanks @babylonstoren letting me photograph your collection 🖤🖤
